with our teamsters union, a large union was encouraging. we got agreements with several of our other unions but the bakers union which is about 30% of our workforce decided to go on strike last friday despite the fact we've been straightforward that a strike would cripple the company and cause a liquidation. i don't know if they thought that was a bluff or there was some other better outcome but that's essentially why why where we are today and the company will be liquidated. >> you'll be laying off most of the 18,500 workers. you had a conference call with employees earlier this morning. what was the reaction? >> people are devastated and you know, you're exactly right, essentially people are going to be sent home today and so i'll restate it, about 30% of our workforce has put 18,500 people out of a job, and that's a lot of families. we had people working very hard this week to try to overcome the strike, management running in the plants, we actually had bakers crossing their own picket lines because they wanted to keep their job but you know, again, there's no -- when a company is in ban
this, do they not? they'd rather have no job, taking the same concessions that the teamsters took rather than a job? they know this? >> i would think that they would have to know it. whether they believe it or not, i don't know. i question whether union leadership actually cares about these jobs because, frankly, it doesn't seem to me that they do. i think they're more concerned about having a precedent set so that other competitors can come to them and ask for similar concessions. i don't see that happening because other competitors aren't in bankruptcy. but i don't see where this works in any possible way for our employees. >> so the great old company, hostess brands, could be ending tonight, it could be over tonight? >> that's correct. >> and it's just playing out the hand at that point, right? an orderly liquidation? how long will it take? >> six months or so. some of the record-keeping takes a little longer. but most everybody will be sent home almost immediately after the hearing on monday or -- i'm sorry, after we have to file the motion tomorrow. and then the hearing on mo
